We discovered a gem of a place for anyone wanting to sample food while walking around and shopping. One of the best places to hang out and enjoy lunch or dinner is the district of Mouffetard around Rue Mouffetard and Rue Descartes. They have a local market with all the goodies your stomach could desire. Veggies, fruits, cheeses, meats, and more. The back alleys of these two streets are filled with various ethnic restaurants from around the world ranging from local French cuisine to Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, German and Greek. It's perfect to have a Spanish appetizer, a slice of pizza as main course, and some French chocolate crepes for dessert. Small shops are lined up in the alleys and specialize in tarts, sweet as well as sour, and yummy pastries that look as fantastic as they taste. I think this is the place I would have dinner every day, should I live in Paris. One could come here for a month without having to go to the same restaurant twice for snacks or meals.
